“An early moon is just a piece of change in the softening sky. “
is the prompt line given from
James Masao Mitsui, “Spring Poem for the Sake of Breathing, Written After a Walk to Foster Island”
AN EARLY MOON
Sometimes it is clear, exercising in the mornings, is sheer punishment. So she relents; tucking herself under her blanket for at least a half an hour more. Aging she muses is no sin.
The birds know their songs, the dew when to fall and the worms their wiggle. All of the above will happen even though she is not yet awake.
Oh but the moon, she will miss this lingering beauty in the silent drama of colours and palettes from above, weaving their silvery pinks and greys to azure. She had always thought " An early moon is just a piece of change in the softening sky"
